Mighty No. 9, the crowdfunded spiritual successor to the Mega Man series, has a new cringe-worthy trailer that promises a “Masterclass” but delivers something that you might expect to find at a Learning Annex.
While the trailer does show off some new Mighty No. 9 footage, but the most memorable thing about it is how horrible the writing is. With such lines as, “You gotta play this game, dude. It’s frickin’ cool,” and, “Make the bad guys cry like an anime fan on prom night,” there’s not much to like within the minute and 25 seconds it drags on. Hidden between bro-isms are some shots of combos, dashes, and absorption boosts. Unfortunately, the comically bad voice-over distracts you from anything that could be considered even slightly exciting.
Mighty No. 9 releases on June 21st on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, 3DS, and PC.
